I think of myself as a tutor and life-relationship coach, working with a person to identify their strengths and use those important parts of their personality to help them solve their present difficulty. Most clients find some helpful solutions within the first few sessions. People are often surprised that they can solve a problem much more quickly than they expect to. I support clients to move through the process at a pace with which they are comfortable. I encourage them to reexamine or reframe their life situation.
I often see clients regularly for a period of time and then occasionally as they see fit for reviews or when new or old difficulties arise. I tailor my approach to the needs of the individual; what might be highly successful for one person may be useless to another. I work with clients to determine what will create the most positive outcome for them, what they are comfortable and ready to work with, and how intensely they would like to proceed.
